Order, Swoon, Envision, Ponder, and Sympathize

Interior Portraits:  Victoria Hagan, the Interior Design Hall of Famer's first foray into publishing.  She produces the gold standard of timeless elegance, in classic american style.  The book is available for pre-order, with an October 12th release date.

Table Settings:  Alberto Pinto, a preeminent tastemaker in France known for his range of design from minimalist simplicity to perfected traditionalism, shows us how to set the table.  I am particularly interested in the intimate, informal ones...done beautifully.

Martha's Vineyard Contemporary Living:  Boston architects, Keith Moskow and Robert Linn, showcase twenty-five new houses that extend beyond the typical vision of cedar-shingled cottages on Martha's Vineyard.  I find myself envisioning a new life of simplicity and order, where true verve is about who you are with, and what existence you have within the environment that surrounds you.

Tinkers:  Paul Harding induces reflection about our elders and family. The recent death of my own grandfather at age 89, drew me into this story.  It was a two-night read, that I couldn't put down.  Honestly beautiful.  Picked up my copy at Bunch of Grapes (thanks for the recommend, Joanne).

Loving Frank:  Nancy Horan's novel features an intimate look into the past life of Frank Lloyd Wright through the fictionalization of the life of Mamah Borthwick Cheney, the "other woman".  A scandalous affair that almost cost the great architect his career.  Recommended to me by the accommodating staff at the Edgartown Library.  Still on check-out, so you'll have to wait...

Support local, buy local...all are available to purchase/order at Bunch of Grapes, Edgartown Books, and at all of our exceptional, local libraries.
